Where Were You in 1992? (15*) + Conversation with Amanda Egbe, Rastko Novaković and Paul Halliday
This programme brings together works by Amanda Egbe, Rastko Novaković and Paul Halliday that challenge institutional violence and racism and explores legacies of resistance.
Three decades since 1992, our lives are again overshadowed by war, ethno-nationalism, violent and institutional racisms, and state and corporate propaganda.
This multi-platform programme marks thirty years since the murder of Stephen Lawrence. It brings together the installation Where Were You in 1992? by Amanda Egbe and Rastko Novaković, alongside new work From a Year with Thirteen Moons, which features the artists doing a live voiceover in dialogue with the film.
Plus a rare screening of Paul Halliday’s 1994 Stephen Lawrence: Living with the Bunker, on the impact of the BNP headquarters on the local community and was the first film to expose the extent of far-right involvement in this murder.
Where Were You in 1992?, sees Egbe and Novaković use montage to consider the legacy of resistance to violence: racist, nationalist and institutional.
